We Currently use Fit Active Children for our PE Sessions. Here is a statement from them about their passion for PE:  

At Churcham Primary and Ashleworth CE Primary Schools we are passionate about raising sporting achievement and improving the health and wellbeing of all our pupils.  Our aim is to deliver a high quality PE curriculum as well as offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities.

We  believe that a rich and varied PE curriculum can improve attainment, attendance and behaviour.  In addition, we want to inspire a love of sport in order to raise the level of physical activity of our pupils outside school.  Through our PE provision we aim to develop the skills and attitudes needed for every child to have a lifelong participation in physical activity and healthy living.  We wupport the Government's initiative to combat obesity and enjoy being active. 

Swimming and water safety

The importance of teaching children to swim has been recognised within education for some time. The most recent National Curriculum for Schools (2014) has continued to reflect this within the Programme of Study for Physical Education

All schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.

In particular, pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

  • use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]

  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

 

During the Spring term of every year, we take the children in Years 3, 4 & 5 swimming. Depending on the length of the term, they will have between 10 – 12 lessons a year. This year, the children had 12 lessons, each lasting 45 minutes.

 

Results for pupils in Year 6 the end of 2021 - 2022: -

  • 2 out of 4 children could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

  • 2 out of 4 children could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]

  • 2 out of 4 children could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
